You need to set the REG in some special position. Because ht_scanbus, may
reset some regs according to it's scan result.
I think the best to use VGA is
1. LinuxBIOS init critical regs to make sure VGA can be used in Linux
2. Linux Kernel does the special work to make use some acceleration function
3. Let X Server no changes.

These are operations that access 0x3cc and other legacy vga stuff, and
they're not getting to vga ...

The right solution. We're doing the wrong solution (running the VGA bios)
because VGA people won't let us do the right solution.
